Senate Republican Leader Issues Statement in Response to Legislative Analysts' Office Review of Governor's Proposed Budget

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) issued the following statement today in response to the Legislative Analysts’ Office Review of the Governor’s Proposed 2012-2013 Budget:

“The Legislative Analyst correctly raises a concern about the Governor’s Tax Initiative, which will increase the state’s dependence on highly volatile income tax payments by the state’s wealthiest individuals,” said Senator Huff.  “It will simply result in yet another boom and bust cycle, which caused our current budget crisis. Senate Republicans stand ready to work with the Governor to craft a bi-partisan budget solution that includes necessary government reforms to education and public employee pensions, without placing additional burdens on California families.”
